Repairing Leaky Rims

There are different reasons why rims leak. Steel rims leak because rust accumulates between the rim and the tire. Rust is inevitable because water collects in rims. Aluminum rims don’t rust but they also leak. However, leaks in aluminum rims are caused by the bonding of the tire rubber with the aluminum over time. In some cases, rims leak because they are bent or cracked, most probably due to an accident or perhaps an overlooked factory defect.
